Thanks for wanting to discover more about me and my business! 

 

I'm Jon Porteous and I've been cycling for as long as I can remember.  I've been riding road bikes and mountain bikes for many decades, and love to set myself new cycling challenges, including Ride London 100 and Struggle Dales.

 

 

 

For 10 years I lived in Jersey, Channel Islands, where there is an abundance of cycle shops for an island of only 45 square miles.  In 2016, I moved back to the UK (and Bicester specifically), where I realised that there aren't many places to get my bikes serviced or repaired.  Once you do find somewhere, it's then difficult to book in your bike at a convenient time.  So, in 2018, JP Cycle Services was born.

Cytech is the internationally recognised training and accreditation scheme for bicycle mechanics - I hold the highest Cytech qualification of Cytech Master Technician.  I regularly update my training to keep up to date with the developments in the industry, including the trend towards e-bikes.

I not only offer my services as a mobile bicycle mechanic in the local area, but I also offer private cycle coaching, Bikeability training in schools and Dr Bike sessions, as well as guided rides.

I was employed for several years as a Special Educational Needs Teaching Assistant and I hold the CACHE Level 3 Diploma in Specialist Support for Teaching & Learning in Schools (RQF).  I hold an enhanced DBS certificate, Safeguarding, Outdoor First Aid and full public liability insurance.
